Listen to a dialogue. Say what part of computer equipment they are talking about


A word processor is a computer used to prepare documents or letters, or the software that is used for this purpose. Many people use their computers for word processing, e.g. writing letters and reports. A lot of business people use spreadsheets (a programme used to enter and arrange numbers and financial information) and databases(programmes which allow you to store, look at or change a large amount of information quickly and easily). Some people also use graphics (the pictures and symbols a computer programme can produce). More and more people are becoming computer-literateas many programmes and machines are so user-friendly. You can connect your computer to computers all over the world using the Internet. People send each other e-mail messagesusing this system or network. If your computer is slow it may need more memory. It may crash or hang if there is not enough memory or if it has a bug (also a virus). Make sure you make a back-up copy of your work.
